filtering system not by the fbi but probably by nsa which looks for any abuse or problem with use of government e-mails. >> right. i think the situation as we ascertained from everything this evening, the fbi was clearly investigating general petraeus. how that started has not been clearly found. what we then know happened is they had this information presumably for quite some time. for me one of the key questions is when did the white house get ahold of this information, and did they make a conscious decision for this not to be released to the media until after the election. i'll turn to barbara starr, if i may. >> piers, i think this is the key question in front of everybody. how extraordinary would it be that you have this type of fbi investigation into the cia director and the president is not informed about it? this seems to really beg disbelief at the moment. the word is circulating that the president was not aware, that only once petraeus came to him, but it really seems to beg belief that someone in the white house didn't know that the fbi didn't inform the white house in

to be a man. william isn't bitter. he's a patriot with ambition and generosity and a dream that humbled us. >>> good evening. breaking news. you're looking live at the white house where on the outside, everything looks calm but behind closed doors, an administration in panic dealing with the petraeus sex scandal that threatens to spin out of control less than one week after president obama's re-election. big questions tonight. what did the white house know and when did it know it. the four-star general has said to be devastated about the scandal, sparked by his affair with his biographer, paula broadwell, uncovered during an fbi investigation. the bureau was looking into so-called jealous e-mails purchase reportedly send by broadwell to kelley, a petraeus family friend. tonight, the "washington post" has reported that as president obama rearranges his national security team, it is considering asking senator john kerry to serve on the team and the fbi agent was barred from taking part in the case for allegedly sending shirtless pictures of himself to a woman involved in the case. meanwhile,
that was blown up today in this car. this has been released on the internet. both sides using it for their own propaganda purposes. how dangerous do you think it is right now over there. what do you think? well, i'm more concerned about what is going to happen in egypt. the muslim brotherhood is in power now. they have to find that fine line between the secular military and the radicals and how they react to this latest incident will be instrumental to the instability. let's turn to david petreaus again. it seems that one by one, the possible major security breaches are being downplayed. having had an affair. discovered into something else. under these circumstances could he have ridden this out dow think? >> well, he himself into the effect that an announcement that he had been having an affair with someone not his wife. he knows the affect that this would have on the organization and the institution. and so he did it what one would expect of an honorable man. we have had general eisenhower and president kennedy all had affairs and stayed in their jobbed and deemed to be great leaders. haven'
night i say right off the top, can any of us get our heads round this and how much more ridiculous can it get, and lo and behold, it gets more ridiculous. barbara starr, let's try and get to what we believe to be the facts behind all the kind of lurid, titillating headlines. a second general today, petraeus' successor in afghanistan, general john allen, a marine corps four star general, current nominee to be the new nato supreme allied commander, so a very big fish indeed in the military. he is apparently at the center of a scandal involving 30,000 documents, all pages or e-mails or whatever that he exchanged with this second woman, the other other woman, jill kelley. what do we know about the content of this? because it's not as simple as simply 30,000 e-mails, right? >> well, that's the real question. what's really involved here. the spin machine is in full cycle on this one. the pentagon says it's about 30,000 pages of documents. they may not all be e-mails, but a good portion of them are e-mails between allen and jill kelley. pentagon official telling reporters today in his words,
